Welcome . . .

to the home of Fred Andersen’s books. You can read excerpts and reviews and buy them here. Lily Torrence and the new one, Pamela Carr, are Classic Hollywood murder mysteries soaked in the noir style that flourished in the immediate postwar world. Here you’ll find the hard-boiled toughs and devious dames from those cigarette smoked and liquor soaked black and white movies that redefined the mystery genre. And the moral issues at the heart of this darkness are as relevant and intriguing today as they were in that time of big hats and jagged lapels.

If your taste runs more to contemporary suspense, Line in the Sand is a thrilling ride in which everyday people must confront and try to defeat the hired killers of a Mexican drug cartel, and then must hide what they’ve done from the cops who can’t protect them. This is also a story of families, and what we will do to protect those whom we love, and those who need our help the most.

“… has the feeling that you are being let in on secrets, pulling you into the conspiracy and making the book that much more enticing. It’s filled with humor, intrigue, and mystery. I had a blast reading the book.” USA Reviews
